The Island of Misfit Boys

Here you are in your Team Whatever jersey, wearing patriotic mittens, when you find out one (or more) of your favorite NHL players didn’t make their respective Olympic team.  Don’t worry, you’re not alone. For two solid weeks in February, you’re invited to our party. Okay, it’s probably going to look more like this: But […]

The Most Wonderful Time

The holiday season is here!  We have stuffed our faces and basked in food coma.  We’ve broken out the ski socks and mittens.  I watched 5 straight episodes of Covert Affairs before bothering to check if I could fast forward the commercials.  Now that we’re back after American Thanksgiving, everyone is ready to work: Movember is […]

Team Canada – Casting Call 2

Summer is over(-ish) and it’s time for Steven Stamkos to put away his white pants.  None of these fashion faux pas on reality TV, boys. As the NHL season nears, players will fight for their teams and for spots on the 2014 Olympic roster.  And, of course, for a rose on our show. First rule […]

Didn’t We Almost Have it Staal?

Sorry, I couldn’t resist. Jared Staal will make his NHL debut tonight with the Hurricanes.  That means Eric, Jordan and Jared will all be on the ice!  Marc, who’s still recovering from an eye injury and the subsequent “I told you so!” of Mama Staal, made the trip with the Rangers.  Trust he’ll be looking […]

Foxy Friday: Hot Dads

Oh holiday season, with your feelings of family and togetherness.  There have been babies everywhere lately – my Thanksgiving, Christmas, office. And my Twitter feed: Too much?  Not enough?  Keep scrolling for more cute. Rangers, Flyers… it’s not the kids fault. 😉 Parker Staal has his own Tumblr feed, thankyouverymuch. Madison Quick could be our […]

Happy Eric Staal Day!

People are talking about Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers on 12.12.12, but we here at WUYS know how to party. Happy Eric Staal Day!   One of the worst things about this lockout is the delay of seeing Eric and Jordan on the same team.  This was going to be their year!  (Jordan got 11.11.11 […]

Stripping Down to Dirty Socks

If you got 21 seconds with Jonathan Toews, is this how you would spend it?   I used to be a ski racer.  I can have someone out of that much gear with time left over for hot chocolate. Bauer hired Toews, Kane, all the Staals (sorry Jared) AND Giroux to star in their new […]

Yup. Still Here.

The NHLPA and NHL cannot get anything done.  Neither can I.   Only the reasons are different. The NHL sees this photo and says: So you think you can dance? The NHLPA posts this photo and says: Goonies never say die. I see this photo and say: Where is my damn Mexicola, Intern Jeff Skinner?! […]

I can’t even laugh.

If I were not so pissed about the looming lockout, I would find this caption hysterical. Apparently Intern Jeff Skinner is much smarter than the intern who captioned this photo of Eric Staal.  Either that, or Jeff’s moonlighting at the Associated Press. I know it’s just a typo, but is it an omen?  Does it […]

Oh Carolina.

Last year was tough for the Carolina Hurricanes. EStaal was minus-257 (ish) on the season.  Intern Jeff Skinner had a concussion and was limited to 20 goals.  Cam Ward’s save percentage was 36th among goalies (down from 17th the year before).  They picked up a little after getting a new coach in Kirk Muller, but […]

Big Weekend

You know those movies where every single thing happens in one day and you’re thinking, “Right, who ever has a day like that?” Then in the middle of this: This happens: The trade was tempered by news on Wednesday that Jordan turned down a 10-year, $60 million deal with the Penguins.  He had one year […]

Front Page

Someone we know once posted this to Facebook: Safe to say that hashtag also applies to: Biebs skated with the Leafs  [link] in a track suit because they didn’t have any Youth Medium hockey gear laying around.  Look at his pants – I bet they’re rolled at the waist too.  Phaneuf is all, “You said Disney princesses! […]

You'll Shoot Your Eye Out

I’m all for the old-fashioned let your kids play outside and get dirty, and yeah sometimes they get hurt.  They’re kids, that’s the way it goes.  But when it comes to multi-million dollar professional athletes: WEAR A VISOR. Martin St. Louis was hit in the face during Tampa Bay’s practice yesterday.  He suffered facial and […]

Foxy Friday: Intern Takeover

Intern Jeff Skinner here – as in the ONLY ONE here.  Where is everyone today?  Jeeeeeez.  One Caps vs. Pens game and the whole place needs a day off to recover.  Since it’s Friday and we all know what that means… well, I’m just keeping this place open by nominating myself for Foxy Friday.  The […]

Boss for a Day

Intern Jeff Skinner is off today to stand in as acting Head Coach of the Hurricanes after they fired Paul Maurice this morning. With a record of 8-13-4 and EStaal struggling mightily, this is less shocking and more standard than Boudreau going from the Caps.  Staal has only 5 goals on on 89 shots – […]

WUYS Morning News

Mike Green didn’t make the trip to Winnipeg with the Caps, but he did take his sprained ankle to the Kid Rock show in DC last night.  He wore his only favorite sweater (seriously, he wears this more than Toews wears that suit) and that hat that makes me want to throw snowballs.  Money was […]

Independent Study

I went to look for this video and I typed “Intern Jeff Skinner” into Google. Hahahahaha. Well Intern Jeff Skinner set his dimples to stun on Saturday night and had 3 points against the Penguins.  If I didn’t love him, I’d hate him.  He scored a scrappy little backhand lifter, then served up a pass […]

Not to brag, but…

While I was busy watching a Hugh Jackman movie last night, the Ghost in the Machine was drawing my fantasy hockey team.  I want this higher power to pick my outfits – look at this beauty! When I named my team for Mike Green, that automatically meant I wouldn’t get him.  Happened last year with […]

Mikey Monday: High Five!

ONLY 5 MONDAYS until our first hockey game of the season!!   Gator, Mr. Pants and I bought tickets for the Blue Jackets @ Caps on Monday, Sept 26.  Tickets were $10.  DISCOUNT MONDAY! We will get bananas excited over a half-empty pre-season game.  Deprivation and too much sugar will do that.  We’ll be playoff-style freaking […]

Staal Wedding Weekend

We hacked the Bauer Hockey Facebook page today and posted nothing but pictures of the Staals.  Oh wait, that wasn’t us?  Someone else did this?  BRAVO.  And woah. You can see all the photos here.  But you can’t handle it. (Oh wait, that’s us.) Ginger Staal got married over the weekend, hence the festivities.  The Staal […]
